Water efficiency and productivity indicators are used in many scientific disciplines, usually to account for water losses that occur during its use, or products generated per unit of water consumed. The interpretation of these indicators is very diverse in the literature. However, the majority of definitions consider water efficiency as a measure of the effectiveness of irrigation, and view water productivity as a measure of the effectiveness of the physiological processes of both biomass production and crop yield formation, linked to the actual consumption of water by the crops. Thus, the consensus seems to be for water application efficiency (Ea) to be considered as the ratio of actual evapotranspiration to the water applied and productivity as the ratio of yield to actual evapotranspiration. The point of divergence relates fundamentally to the understanding of the constituent expressions of productivity (PE, product/“water consumed”) and efficiency of water application (Ea, “water consumed”/“applied water”). Indeed, the term “water consumed” is referred to variously by several authors as “actual evapotranspiration”, “gross irrigation plus rainfall”, “evapotranspiration plus water lost at the plot but beneficial to other users”, etc. Furthermore, while providing more details on the concepts of efficiency and water productivity, this review shows that the factors affecting these indicators have not yet been sufficiently elucidated. Thus, one of the axes of investigation could be to model the application efficiency of water firstly, according to water management practices and secondly, in terms of productivity levels in relation to the crop establishment period.

Because the term stress is used, most often subjectively, with various meanings, this paper first attempts to clarify the physiological definition, and the appropriate terms as responses in different situations. The flexibility of normal metabolism allows the development of responses to environmental changes which fluctuate regularly and predictably over daily and seasonal cycles. Thus every deviation of a factor from its optimum does not necessarily result in stress. Stress begins with a constraint or with highly unpredictable fluctuations imposed on regular metabolic patterns that cause bodily injury, disease, or aberrant physiology. Stress is the altered physiological condition caused by factors that tend to alter an equilibrium. Strain is any physical and/or chemical change produced by a stress, i.e. every established condition, which forces a system away from its thermodynamic optimal state. The paper secondly summarises the Strasser's state-change concept which is precisely that suboptimality is the driving force for acclimation (genotype level) or adaptation (population level) to stress. The paper continues with the actual knowledge on the mechanisms of stress recognition and cell signalling. Briefly: plasma membranes are the sensors of environmental changes; phytohormones and second messengers are the transducers of information from membranes to metabolism; carbon balance is the master integrator of plant response; betwixt and between, some genes are expressed more strongly, whereas others are repressed. Reactive oxygen species play key roles in up- and down-regulation of metabolism and structure. The paper shows finally that the above concepts can be applied to plant tissue cultures where the accumulating physiological and genetical deviations (from a normal plant behaviour) are related to the stressing conditions of the in vitro culture media and of the confined environment. The hyperhydrated state of shoots and the cancerous state of cells, both induced under conditions of stress in in vitro cultures, are identified and detailed, because they perfectly illustrate the stress-induced state-change concept. It is concluded that stress responses include either pathologies or adaptive advantages. Stress may thus contain both destructive and constructive elements: it is a selection factor as well as a driving force for improved resistance and adaptive evolution. [less ▲]

Dans cette étude, nous nous proposons d’appliquer à la sphère phénoménale la thèse conceptualiste selon laquelle le contenu d’un acte de perception est intégralement réductible à un contenu conceptuel. Il s’agit de défendre l’idée que les qualités phénoménales — les qualia — sont elles aussi justiciables, à l’instar de l’ensemble de ce qui compose le contenu de l’expérience perceptive, d’une identification conceptuelle. Pour mener à bien notre projet, nous étendrons, au prix de quelques rectifications, la thèse conceptualiste initialement développée par J. McDowell à la phénoménologie de la perception. Cela nous permettra d’établir un dialogue fructueux entre les débats actuels en philosophie de l’esprit et la (proto-)phénoménologie husserlienne. L’issue de cette discussion entre traditions n’est rien de moins qu’une nouvelle lecture de la phénoménologie, au-delà de son interprétation frégéenne. [less ▲]

It is commonly accepted that highly challenging planet finding missions such as Darwin and TPF need precursors on the ground, for both technological demonstration and study of the exozodiacal clouds around potential targets. A first instrument, GENIE, designed to be implemented in the interferometric laboratory of the VLTI, was studied by ESA and scientific/industrial teams. In this paper we present a concept for ALADDIN, an operational nulling instrument to be implemented at Dome C in Antarctica, and discuss the comparison with GENIE from the instrumental point of view. Our preliminary design involves moderate ~1m size telescopes mounted on a 40m long rotating beam allowing baselines up to 30m and feeding a 2-arm nulling beam combiner. When compared to GENIE, the rotating beam design has the advantage of removing the need for both long-stroke delay line and dispersion control equipments. As a side effect, the instrumental arrangement of ALADDIN finds itself more representative of what Darwin will be. Furthermore, critical issues like phase control, photometric balance and instrumental background suppression are expected to be relaxed by the improved atmospheric conditions, lower temperature, and simpler optical trains. Calibration of geometrical stellar leakage will make advantage of the continuously adjustable baseline. As results, a simpler instrument showing improved performance is expected. In conclusion, we see our ALADDIN concept as a valuable alternative to GENIE, with a quite stronger scientific potential and a considerably simplified instrumental design. [less ▲]

Abstract Earthquakes may trigger a series of multiple cascading geohazard phenomena. For example, coseismic landslides may block rivers and form landslide dams, which occur frequently in tectonically active mountains with narrow and steep valleys. The catastrophic release of water masses from landslide-impounded lakes is capable to produce outburst floods and debris flows, causing loss of lives, housing and infrastructure. Quantifying the probability of these cascading phenomena following a triggering event has been a main ... [less ▲]
